It didn't take long into the World Series for America to win free tacos.

Mookie Betts' stolen base in the bottom of the first inning against Clayton Kershaw meant free tacos from Taco Bell as part of a promotion for a stolen base in the World Series.

Taco Bell locations will be giving away free Doritos Locos Tacos on Nov. 1 from 2-6 p.m

One person who will not be participating -- Brock Holt.

"I haven’t eaten Taco Bell in probably 10 years," he said after the game. "I’ll probably stay away from the free taco. I’ll let everyone else get it."

"I would have to take my son there. He loves Chipotle. He crushes it. He’s two years old and eats a whole Chipotle bowl by himself. I’d have to give him my free Chipotle. But Taco Bell, I’m going to pretty much stay away from Taco Bell. I could end up on a toilet all night."

If things keep going like Game 1 for the Red Sox, they will have bigger celebrations taking place around Nov. 1 -- a World Series title.
